8 Side Hustles In Ontario Where You Can Earn A Little Extra Cash

Whether you have a full-time job or not, we can all appreciate a little spare change to support our caffeine addictions. So, if you’re ready to line your pockets with a little extra spending money, then listen up. We’ve gathered 8 money-making apps and websites available in Ontario right now so you can finally get that side hustle started. 

Whether you’re a writer looking for a platform to publish your work or an artist who wants to get their drawings out to the world, you can do it all while earning money and gifts.

One website even lets you earn real money for transcribing video and audio recordings. 

It can be hard work, but you don’t need to leave the house to do it which we totally love. 

Other apps require a little less effort on your part.

For example, did you know you can earn cash back just for buying certain groceries?

Um, excuse us?

Now, keep in mind none of these resources are a means to get rich, but if you can earn coffee change for doing things you’d have to do anyway, why not try it?

So take a look at the list below and get ready to get your side hustle moving.

Vocal Media Writer

Looking to flex your creative muscles? Anyone can sign up to be a writer on the Vocal platform for free. You earn money based on page views and can cash out as soon as you reach $30 on the free version. This certainly isn't going to make you rich quick, but it's an excellent creative outlet where you could earn some side cash.


Rev Transcriptionist 

This one admittedly can be a lot of work for not a lot of money. But, once you get in the groove, you can score some pretty consistent earnings. Now you do have to apply, but as long as your transcription test isn't riddled with typos, you'll likely get accepted.


Indeed Job Spotter

This app does require a little walking around, but it's a simple and quick way to earn a little extra spending money for Amazon. All you need to do is upload a photo of a hiring sign and the business it's attached to. You'll earn points for each approved submission, which can be traded in for Amazon gift cards.



There's a few ways to earn with this app. You can take surveys, watch videos, and more. You will earn points that can be redeemed for gift cards from Amazon, Walmart, and more.


Checkout 51

This app gives you cash back when you buy certain groceries all you need to do is upload a photo of the receipt. Like most apps on this list, you're not going to make a career out of grocery shopping, but cash back on items you might have to buy anyway? Seems like a no-brainer to us.



Has all this extra time at home sent your spring cleaning into high gear? If you're wondering what to do with all of those extra clothes in your closet, you can sell them on this app.



Love snapping pics with your phone? This app actually lets you sell those fire photos. According to reviews, purchases are pretty rare, but not impossible. So, might as well shoot your shot, right?


Society 6

Calling all artists! This app lets you upload your visual art pieces and choose products for them to be used on. That means you can sell tapestries, phone cases, prints, and more all from one drawing. You'll earn a percentage of the profits on every sale.
